Going home again - yes you can

The new header photo for this blog shows my wife’s family farm near Calhoun, Georgia, first settled by the family in 1850. My wife’s paternal grandmother was born here in 1884 on the original homestead (torn down in the 1960s) which stood where the photographer stood to get this picture of the old smokehouse and well. 424 more words

The crew finished my barn addition this week! I am looking forward to pulling some of my junk important accessories out of my main workshop and storing them in the new addition so I will have some room to work on some projects this winter. 233 more words

Homestead Update

I hope everyone had an enjoyable Thanksgiving Day. I spent a few days with my family and it was time well spent as always. I haven’t done a lot around the homestead, I have two close family members who are in and out of the hospital and rehabilitation centers, so I have been going back and forth with them. 354 more words

I spent several days away from home during the past 2 weeks, including some time I spent at my parents house.

Their house is on the lake, and they needed the seawall replaced. 545 more words
